Feb 10, 2012, 9:44 AM
My temps ( i have cpu cooler) :
CPU : 21 to 24 degrees on idle
GPU : 35
MOBO : 30
Try to check the temps on load.

how do i go about going into load etc and checking it :P

Better if you buy an aftermarket cooler and after that do the tests. If your temp are good in idle in load must be good. The problem is when the temps are high in idle , is not your case.

Temps are normal at idle.
There are many software you can use to monitor temps:
Your mobo has temps devices for CPU and Chassis temperature sensing
In order to check temps at full load you might need to stress your system. A good free software for the job is AIDA64 Extreme Edition
